The new lambs are fitting in well here. They are still skittish around people, but a couple of the goats are okay with them.
Initially, the goats stared at them, wide-eyed, like they were viewing some exotic creature in a zoo.I kept the lambs in the pen for the first few days and the goats would literally line up to stare at them!
Now I have turned the lambs loose with the goats. Nola and Lilac try to play with them and Champagne seems to like them. Lily is okay with them. They scare Gabby a little! Nina just wants to head butt them. Then again, Nina tried to head butt ME!
A few not so good pictures, but it gives you an idea of their size.
Betty and her chicks are doing well. Someone gave us four chicks they did not want and I tried to get Betty to accept them, but, nope, she didn't want any part of them. So, I am raising the wee orphans. One escaped out of the box they were delivered to me in and has been surviving in our yard. Between neighbors cats, neighborhood feral cats, snakes and everything else, it is surprising that he (she?) is still alive and kicking---three days after escaping!
I have named the little cuss "Lynard" as in Skynard...*Freebird* reference, lol!
Speaking of cats, we discovered my neighbors gray Persian cat has given birth...under our house. From the looks of the kittens, she had them about 4 to 5 weeks ago. We haven't caught them yet. There are 4 of them and we want them OUT before they get hurt, start crapping all over the place, go after our chickens, etc.
So, besides stalking and capturing Lynard the chick, we also have to catch 4 semi-feral kittens!
Hope your weekend is going well!
